Bottom Line: This app is a unique take on early number learning which definitely adds something to the app store in a saturated early childhood market. Trace the number with a variety of objects (boat, train, mouse) and they turn into adorable monsters. It’s perfectly engaging for toddlers and early preschoolers, and there is even a juggling octopus-like monster.
Bottom Line: A fun app targeting early math skills for kids ages 2-6. Children practice numbers 1-20 with five different activities, complete with verbal reinforcement. The app is easy to navigate and the content is appropriate for the target audience, but it could benefit from some added differentiation options.
